The latest case in Donna Leon's bestselling Brunetti mystery series--"one of the most exquisite and subtle detective series ever" ("The Washington Post") The "Philadelphia Inquirer" called Leon's incomparable creation Commissario Guido Brunetti "the most humane sleuth since Georges Simenon's Inspector Maigret." It's no wonder then that Leon's legion of fans continues to grow with each new book that's published. In "Through a Glass, Darkly," Brunetti investigates the murder of a night watchman, whose body is found in front of a blazing furnace at Giovanni De Cal's glass factory along with an annotated copy of Dante's Inferno. Did the cantankerous De Cal kill him? Will Brunetti make the connection between the work of literature and the murderer in time?

Review quote

"The appeal of Guido Brunetti, the hero of Donna Leon's long-running Venetian crime series, comes not from his shrewdness, though he is plenty shrewd, nor from his quick wit. It comes, instead, from his role as an Everyman ... [his life is] not so different from our own days at the office or nights around the dinner table. Crime fiction for those willing to grapple with, rather than escape, the uncertainties of daily life."
